Editing test list instance to change work completed date does not work

Issue #523 invalid
Vincent Leduc created an issue

Hi Randle,

If I edit a test list instance to set work completed date to, say, yesterday and then submit the test list, work completed date gets reset to the current datetime. So, although this field is editable in the form, in reality we can’t edit it to the value of our choosing.

Is there another way to edit the work completed date that I didn’t see?

    Hi Vincent, I can’t reproduce this issue. If work completed is blank when the test list is submitted it will get set to todays date/time but if it’s not blank then it should retain the value that was set while editing. I just tested this a couple of times and it’s working fine as far as I can tell.

    The only thing I can think of is that there’s maybe some issue with timezones (e.g. if the work completed time is close to midnight). If you set the date to a few days in the past (note work completed always has to be after work started) do you still see the same issue?

    You’re right. My bad, I got (rather embarrassingly) confused with the modification date, which if course is updated.

    Sorry for that! Let’s close this one.
